Markforged 3D Printers – How you can benefit from 3D printing!

3D printing with Markforged is a lot more than printing prototypes and small plastic parts.

Why you should buy a Markforged 3D printer?

The industrial 3D printers can print high-strength parts from the full range of materials from carbon fiber to metal. The unique technology, which enables the printing of carbon fiber and other filaments in combination with onyx or nylon, makes it possible to produce extremely strong components. This opens up completely new possibilities for every professional designer, engineer and constructor. Here we would like to show you why 3D printing can be a very useful process in manufacturing for you too.

Why 3D printing is also interesting for your production

3D printing is a milestone for the industry. A lot of time and money can now be saved by producing prototypes, small series and spare parts. Some companies have already switched to 3D printing for the production of various small parts. With the printers you can print parts of different sizes in various base materials such as onyx, nylon or metal. For fibre reinforcement, composite materials such as carbon fibre, fiberglass, high-temperature fiberglass or Kevlar are inserted into the component to make it even more stable.
The base materials are applied layer by layer, while the composite materials are added in a continuous fiber from a second print head. This way unique and high-strength components can be produced with enormous savings in cost, time, weight and material!
Compared to classic CNC milling, 3D printing generates significantly less waste and harmful substances. Furthermore, any conceivable geometry can be produced, such as internal cavities.

Case study: jigs for a TRUMPF laser welding machine
Primetall needs individual fixtures for some components in order to clamp them on a laser welding machine. These jigs were previously made of aluminium and were very heavy and expensive to produce. The jig was optimized with additive manufacturing and reinforced inside with a continuous carbon fiber. In addition, a zero-point clamping system was added and channels were integrated inside the jig. Now forming gas can be directed to wherever it is needed – with only one gas connection! It was practically “drilled around the corner”. That is manufacturing redefined.
The production of this device with a 3D printer has a saving of 1060€ per device compared to conventional production!

How does 3D printing work?

With 3D printing, any conceivable geometry can be produced. The forms must be available in digital form in three dimensions. The CAD files are processed at the Markforged printers in the cloud based EIGER software. As soon as the file is loaded into the software in STL format, printing can begin. If necessary, the printer automatically creates a support structure which can be easily removed after printing. With additive manufacturing (also called generative manufacturing), the component grows from bottom to top. Furthermore, there is an adjustable grid structure inside the component. With this the stability of the component can be varied as desired. With topology optimization, additional material can be saved – with the same stability! Markforged’s professional 3D printers meet the industry standard and convince with their highest precision, quality and surface finish.

The EIGER software from Markforged

From the three-dimensional template to the finished component

3D printing of composite materials requires innovative software. With EIGER, the intelligent, cloud-based platform, you can easily monitor the stability and quality of your components. Whether you have a 3D printer or an entire “printer farm”, you can work and organize everything in one integrated system. Typically, one person can operate an entire “printer farm” of multiple printers. So you can produce and optimize your prototypes or spare parts according to your own ideas.

“The barriers between idea and reality are torn down”

With Markforged 3D printers every design concept, every geometry becomes reality! With an working space of 330 x 270 x 200 mm and a layer height of 50μm in the X-Series, ideal components for robotics, automotive industry or prototype construction can be produced.
Markforged has achieved a breakthrough in the quality and precision of 3D printed components thanks to laser-assisted construction process control*. The printing layers are scanned by a laser while the printing is still in progress to ensure highly accurate, industry standard printing results.

*The laser-assisted construction process control in the X-Series is only integrated in the X7.
